Hampshire Pond

If you’re considering a move to Fort Collins, or even a move within Fort Collins, and if you like the outdoors, we suggest you take a peek at Hampshire Pond

Consisting of just three square blocks, Hampshire Pond, located immediately south of Drake Rd and just to the west of Taft Hill Rd, is, at first glance, nondescript. Zoom out just a bit, though, and you’ll quickly realize what makes this little subdivision so special. If you were to explore Hampshire Pond you would find, at the south edge, two little paths. These innocuous paths, in this seemingly average little neighborhood, lead to Spring Creek Trail. This may not seem like much until you spend even a few minutes exploring the trail. Along the trail you will find parks, open space, beautiful trees, multiple creek crossings, lovely views, and yes, Dairy Queen. If you’re considering a move to Fort Collins, or even a move within Fort Collins, and if you like the outdoors, we suggest you take a peek at Hampshire Pond — it really is a wonderful little neighborhood.

Spring Park

[ 0 ] October 16, 2016 |

Located along Spring Creek Trail, Spring Park, established in 1965, is one of the older parks in Fort Collins. At the park you’ll find the obligatory playground equipment, as well as two youth baseball fields, but you’ll also find a large green space filled with trees. Don’t get us wrong, if you’d like to take the kids somewhere to play, the playground is certainly nice, but what we really like about Spring Park is the serenity that comes from so much green space.

Your Home Should Not Be a Commodity

Your home should not be like corn. Corn is a commodity; a commodity is an economic good whose value is NOT based on any sort of qualitative measure. The buyer of corn is not looking for better corn and doesn’t think about worse corn; corn is corn to this buyer. Because of this, because corn is all the same, the buyer will determine value based solely on price.

Lexington Green & Village West

“We moved to this neighborhood because of the proximity to Spring Creek Trail. Our family loves to ride bikes and having the trail just two blocks away was just too good to pass up. Our kids have grown/are growing up riding their bikes to school along this trail, I have enjoyed the easy access along the trail to the foothills, where I can mountain bike, and as a family we love riding along Spring Creek Trail through the CSU campus to Old Town. We’ve also spent countless hours playing tennis, volleyball, etc., etc. in Rolland Moore Park. Yes, we moved here because we loved the idea of having Spring Creek Trail, and all that it accesses, so close, but what we have come to love, and what will keep us here, are our neighbors. Our kids look at the people on our block as extended family and they would be heartbroken if we ever moved. We love our neighborhood.” -DM

I ♥ Traffic

[ 0 ] October 7, 2016 |

 

Nobody likes a complainer – especially when the person doing the complaining lives in an area filled with beautiful parks & open space, well-manicured trails, nice people, friendly dogs and only well-behaved kids. I don’t want to be the complainer responsible for so much eye rolling, but seriously, am I the only one frustrated with traffic that is only exacerbated by the many, many miles of road construction/improvement? I suspect not. Read More
